The Use of Gradual Progression in Establishing Higher Order Behaviors.
Solomon, Carol
This paper illustrates the use of a behavioral analysis of completed curriculum materials as an extremely useful technique for identifying a gradual progression in task difficulty appropriate to the to-be-learned higher ordered behavior. Several learning resources from Pittsburgh's Learning Research and Development Center's Individualized Science Curriculum were selected for analysis for their relevance to achievement of the curriclulm's inquiry goal. The method of analysis is described as that of identifying the minimum behaviors asked of students in preceding lessons to determine if those behaviors prepare them to successfully achieve specific inquiry objectives. The curriculum materials used are briefly described. A typical Mini-Exploration was used for the analysis and is presented in the paper. References are cited. (EB)
